Hey there, it is Friday and I hope you all have lots of fun stuff planned for the weekend. It looks like the weather here in Central CA is going to be pretty nice.
Lately, I have been seeing stacked die cuts show up on the internet and I really like the effect and decided to give it a try myself.
My favorite color is green and I love lots of layers, so this card is right up my alley. I started with a top fold green card base and used Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots to add the green print panel to the base card. I set that aside and started on my focal panel. I knew I wanted to stencil the background, so I pulled out my Memory Box Chevron stencil and taped it down to a 5 x 7 piece of white cardstock (I like to use a larger piece than needed and cut it down, I think it is easier to get it nice and straight that way) next, I applied some Adirondack Lettuce ink from the top down to about the middle of the cardstock and then used Adirondack Meadow ink from the bottom up to about the middle allowing the inks to overlap and create a mid tone color in the middle of the panel. I cut down the chevron panel and adhered it to a green panel using Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots and then added this panel to the base card using Tombow Foam Tabs. Now for the super fun part…..I die cut the Hero Arts Spring Branch die three times out of green cardstock and stacked them using Tombow Mono Multi and then added a little bit of the green inks to the edges for a finished look. I glued them down with a little more Mono Multi and then added a sentiment, some twine, a little glitter glue and a few pearls for a finishing touch.
If you have created something using the “stacked diecuts” technique, leave me a comment with a link, I would love to check out your creations.
Until next time…..happy stamping!
